Culinary travel just got kicked up a notch with the announcement of Tampa's New Epicurean Hotel, a boutique hotel devoted to the culinary arts, located in the city's trendy Hyde Park historic district. Slated to open November 2013, The Epicurean will feature a large, state-of-the-art culinary classroom, high-end bistro, wine shop, rooftop lounge, full-service spa, and a retail and production bakery and pastry shop. "This is a match made in heaven - or maybe heaven's kitchen," said Joe Collier, Mainsail Lodging & Development's president. "The Epicurean is a perfect addition to Marriott's Autograph CollectionŽ, which is known for delivering unique travel experiences. Combine that brand with Mainsail Lodging and the culinary artistry of Bern's and you've got a finished product that is going to delight our South Tampa neighbors and dazzle travelers from around the world."
